Don’t Forget SPF!

Most of us probably grew up hearing about the importance of sunscreen but many still do not wear it. Soaking up a little sun is good for your overall well-being but too much of a good thing can be bad too. There are two types of harmful UV rays: UVA and UVB – both can cause damage to your skin.

UVA rays cause premature aging while UVB rays cause sunburns. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is generally recommended for everyday usage. 

Sunscreen should be included in everyone’s daily routine. 

Here are 5 reasons why sunscreen is important and why you should apply it everyday.

Skin cancer prevention

The UV rays radiated from the sun are carcinogenic so sunscreens are essential to prevent the formation of skin cancers. There are three types of skin cancers, namely squamous cell skin cancer, basal cell skin cancer, and melanoma. Melanoma can be lethal if left untreated. Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancers affecting Malaysians so do make it a habit to wear sunscreen every day before going outdoors.  

Prevent premature ageing

Another common condition caused by excessive exposure to the sun is premature aging. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays breaks down the skin’s elastin and collagen, thus causing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Regular sunscreen usage will ensure that you stay youthful and radiant. 

Sunscreen is important for all skin types

Absolutely no one should forgo sunscreen application, regardless of skin colour or type. Yes, people with lighter complexions are more susceptible to skin cancers but this does not mean that people with darker complexions are immune. Sun damage is cumulative so it is important to take early preventative measures by wearing sunscreen daily. 

Sunscreen evens your skin tone 

In addition to causing wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage also causes discolouration and pigmentation to your skin. Sunscreen is an effective tool to help prevent discolouration and brown spots from forming. Spare your skin and start slathering on that sunscreen because discolouration is stubborn and difficult to get rid of. Besides, sunscreen does help to reduce the appearance of facial redness and blotches.

The ozone layer is depleting 

The ozone layer acts as a natural sun shield for the earth as it absorbs harmful ultraviolet radiation. However, the ozone layer is slowly depleting so sunscreen should be used for added protection to combat destructive UV rays.      

Frankly, the benefits of wearing sunscreen are endless. There is a wide variety of sunscreens out there for every skin type so get yourself some SPF today (and if you still don’t, what are you doing?).

Trust us, your skin will thank you in the long run. 

‘Which is more effective?’

Having body hair is a normal and natural occurrence but most people, especially women, choose to get rid of it due to hygiene or aesthetic purposes. 

There is a wide array of hair removal methods that one can use, including shaving, plucking, waxing, and laser hair removal among others.

While shaving and plucking are easier and more accessible, many opt to go for waxing and laser hair removal for longer-lasting results. 

In recent years, laser hair removal has become a more sought-after option to get rid of body hair because of its many benefits. 

Laser hair removal is a technique whereby pulses of laser light are aimed at a particular area of the body to remove the hair. With the Soft Light technology, our Permanent Hair Removal S-Light service is effective enough to even detect hair on darker skin tones and pale-coloured hair. 

1. Pain level

Laser hair removal is also considerably less painful compared to waxing. Waxing is definitely much more painful because hair is physically ripped off the skin using hot wax, whereas laser treatments only cause minimal discomfort. 

2. Side effects

The Permanent Hair Removal S-Light treatment is also completely safe and poses no side effects. Laser hair treatment is more efficient for a smoother hair removal process compared to waxing because waxing often causes ingrown hairs and is also time consuming. With laser hair removal, unwanted hair follicles will be completely destroyed, thus preventing the formation of ingrown hairs. 

3. Price point

Laser hair removal is a more cost-effective treatment as it guarantees better results in the long run compared to the waxing method.

A Meridian massage is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

The massage stimulates the acupressure points using various techniques to help clear any blockage and balance the flow of qi & blood in the meridians. 

Meridians are like rivers, carrying the flow of energy (Qi) just like a river carries the flow of water to different destinations in a specific direction. 

These meridian pathways work by distributing energy, nutrients, and blood across the body in just about the same way as the circulatory system. 

There are 12 major meridians in a body and these meridian lines are all connected to major organs.

There are 12 meridians in a body and these meridian lines are all connected to major organs.

The 12 Major Meridians

Lung Meridian

The lung meridian controls how energy is consumed and impacts the respiratory system.

Large Intestine Meridian

The large intestine meridian regulates the processing and extraction of water from waste. 

Stomach Meridian

The stomach meridian regulates the extraction of nutrients from food, nutrient distribution to the intestines and spleen, and the overall digestion of food. 

Heart Meridian

The heart meridian regulates the circulation of blood to all organs. 

Small Intestine Meridian

The small intestine meridian is responsible for digestion, water absorption, nutrient absorption, and bowel functions. 

Bladder Meridian

The bladder meridian regulates the removal of the toxins from the body. 

Kidney Meridian

The kidney meridian regulates the reproductive system, testosterone levels, produces bone marrow and blood. 

Pericardium Meridian

The pericardium meridian regulates the energy (Qi) that surrounds the heart, protects the heart, ensuring proper function and emotional balance. 

Triple Warmer Meridian

The triple warmer meridian regulates the metabolism of the body and promotes general wellness.

Gall Bladder Meridian

The gall bladder meridian regulates the removal and storage of toxins that are produced by the liver. 

Liver Meridian

The liver meridian regulates the female reproductive system, circulation of energy, and maintains the flexibility of the ligaments and the tendons.

Eventually, these internal meridians will come to the surface of the skin, where it becomes external.

Acupoints are located on the external pathways.

Hence, if there is an issue with a particular channel or organ, these problems can be addressed by treating various points. 

When these pressure points are being stimulated, it activates a series of networks along the meridian.

This activation is what then carries the effect of the massage from one end of the body to another providing the desired healing effect.

Getting a Meridian massage can definitely help to re-balance your system and enhance your overall health.⁣⁣

Being confident in one’s self-image is not as easy as it seems. With the prevalence of body image “ideals” projected on every media platform, it is difficult for us to escape. Our inherent need to compare ourselves to others and the ever-evolving societal beauty standards also make it tough to be confident in our body image. That being said, it is not impossible for us to build our body confidence. The sooner we get on that, the sooner we will get to improve our mental and physical wellbeing.  

Here are 5 tips that will help boost your body confidence: 

Redirect your focus

Despite having hectic lifestyles, we all need to practise having a healthy and balanced exercise routine. Be it having a gym subscription, playing group sports or even partaking in Youtube workout challenges at home, any form of exercise is beneficial for you. Many people have this perception that the sole purpose of working out is to attain their ideal body shape in a short period of time and when that doesn’t happen, most tend to give up.

Yes, continuous workouts may help you achieve that but that’s not all there is to it. This is why you may need to redirect your focus when you exercise. Instead of focusing solely on achieving results, you should focus on how exercising makes you feel. This way, you will grow to love and enjoy exercising even more which will result in long-term results. 

Surround yourself with positive people

It is true what people say about how positivity brings about more positivity. We tend to pick up energy from the people around us so if we surround ourselves with positive people, we will learn to have a more positive and happy outlook on life. It is important to choose your circle of friends wisely. If you feel that the people around you are negative and constantly bring you down, it’s probably time to reconsider the relationship. You should invest in the people who love you, not those who scrutinise your every little detail. Positive people can also influence us to become better versions of ourselves.

Broaden your expertise

Have you been eyeing that lemon meringue recipe? Interested in picking up a new musical instrument? Or even volunteering at your nearest animal shelter? Well, now is the time to start getting into that. Find something that piques your interest and learn something new and exciting over the weekend. Finding a hobby that you enjoy can be really beneficial to your life and  it has been proven that hobbies are instrumental in relieving stress. Through hobbies, you get to feed yourself with new experiences while also doing something productive during your leisure time. People who partake in hobbies are also often happier and have a better sense of belonging thus, increasing their self-confidence. 

Express yourself

Most people have had doubts about their self-image at one point in their lives. It is normal and can be considered a part of life. However, if this behaviour prolongs, it can be mentally taxing. One of the ways to boost your body confidence is to express yourself. Find someone trustworthy to talk to. It is important to talk about self-esteem issues and how it is affecting you to someone you trust, whether it is to a family member, friend, a significant other, or your therapist. Finding the right person to have a heart-to-heart can significantly improve your confidence and life.

Adopt affirmations

Another way to boost your body confidence is to adopt positive affirmations. One way you can start doing that is by saying positive things to yourself in the mirror everyday. Think about all your favourite attributes and start complimenting yourself. When you start doing this, you will learn to appreciate and love your body even. It may be weird when you start but positive affirmations can have a lasting effect on your outlook and confidence.
